getting ready to say good-bye
Addicted. I developed my love for the DC in college. I continued to love it in Grad School but I could still take it or leave it. And then...I had children and the feeling of the first sip of a fountain Diet Coke brought me such immense pleasure, I imagine it is how some people feel about a first drink of wine. I don't drink alcohol at all, it makes me feel sick to my stomach. So for years and years as other people have been drinking wine and cocktails I've been hanging with my Diet Coke.
No more cold, fizzy carbonation. A small sacrifice for the chance at a healthier life.
The time has come to say good-bye. I will need to find that deep sigh in something else. Some other way to soothe a frazzled moment.
I know this will be hard. It's like saying good-bye to an old friend.
Question: if you loved carbonated drinks in the past, what do you enjoy now that you are banded?
